Who we are
Futuraskolan International Warfvinges väg is an international pre-school which follows the Swedish national curriculum in combination with Fieldwork Education’s International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC). We have a space for 100 children between the ages of 1-6. We have six “base groups” and each “base group” vary in size from 15-21 children. Each “base group” is lead by a team of two to three teachers.
We focus on providing our children the opportunity to experience stimulating and engaging learning activities and recognizing their day to day development. Most importantly, we want our children to learn through playing and have fun!
Futuraskolan Warfvinges väg is situated in Kungsholmen with the entrance facing a little park where we have our own playground. We are a short walk from many alternative playgrounds, fields and forests to give variety to outdoor play.
What we offer and how we work
We work with the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC) which is thematic way of working to compliment the Swedish national curriculum to stimulate learning in the areas of language, mathematics and natural sciences.
At our pre-school we create the pedagogical learning areas together with the children. We work on taking their interests and skills to develop specific areas that make each one of them visible, challenged, and successful! International library, natural science area, construction area, make believe area, language area, Information and communication technology area, just to name a few of the areas in our pedagogical learning environment.
English is our medium of communication and we also provide the children the opportunities to develop their Swedish language, and their mother tongue through the use of literature, events, and everyday interaction. We make use of our International language library as we believe it is important to nurture every child’s native language and culture. We embrace the cultural diversity at the pre-school. More so, we have native Swedish speaking teachers who speak and introduce the Swedish language on a daily basis.
Along with our daily activities, we are outside two hours daily. Our location provides the children with a variety of places to develop both gross and fine motor skills as well as a curiosity for nature.
Our partnership with the home is develop in many ways, one of which is through our Parents and Teachers Association (PTA). This is a forum for open dialogue with our parents where we can exchange ideas, encourage parents involvement and allow parents the opportunities to influence activities in the pre-school.
